SUMMER READING RECOMMENDATIONS
by Therese Anne Fowler

Submitted by Kelly K.
This book made me very emotional, and is very timely with race in the forefront. It also confronts issues of class, raising teenagers, environmentalism, and more. 
I loved it until things went awry, but I kept reading. Though I really wanted something different to happen, it was heartbreakingly good and very thought provoking. 
This book would be a good next read if you enjoyed Little Fires Everywhere .

Could you be overthinking things? Many people with perfectionist tendencies overthink - a lot! Anne Bogel analyzes the problem of overthinking and gives practical steps forward: expect good things, choose what to think about, limit options. If lengthy decision making, and a paralyzing need for certainty, are creating detours and dead ends in your life, then just read this book...don’t overthink it!

A deeply layered and intricate tale, written with amazing style. Flashing back and forward, the character’s lives and secrets are revealed, intertwined in various locations and with the past ever-haunting the present. A secluded hotel, a Ponzi scheme, a shipping adventure, Manhattan, a correctional facility -- all play a role. I fell into this book but slowly savored the story, fascinated by how it would all eventually come together. A+

Submitted by Stefanie M.
It’s Zoe Washington’s 12th birthday, and she just had her dream party at her favorite bakery. Everything is going perfectly until she finds the letter. The letter from her father who has been incarcerated her entire life, who she’s never heard from until now. Or so she thought. All her life, she’s had the idea that her father was a horrible man, a convicted murderer, and someone who would never be a part of her life. 
Follow Zoe as she begins a pen pal relationship with her father, starts a journey to investigate the truths she thought were absolute, and figures out that everything in the world might not be as black and white as she originally thought.
